Roast Vegetable Tart With Tapenade

This is an easy and appetizing vegetable tart, a recipe given to me by a friend, which I have adapted slightly. I use ready-made puff pastry, but if you want to spend the time making your own, I am sure it makes this dish even more tasty! You could use different toppings, e.g. tomato sauce instead of the tapenade, which would make it more like a pizza. This is delicious hot or cold, so if you make it for dinner one night, you could then save a couple of slices to have for lunch the next day, as I often do.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 packet vegan puff pastry (around 320g size)
  • Selection of vegetables, e.g. aubergines, peppers, mushrooms, onions
  • 1-2 tbsps olive oil for roasting
  • Herbs, e.g. thyme, rosemary or oregano
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 1 small (100g)  jar olive tapenade (green or black olives work equally well)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pine nuts or grated vegan cheese
  • Plant milk for glazing


1.) Slice vegetables into chunks and roast in the oven with olive oil, herbs and lemon wedges, until soft (about 20 minutes).

2.) While vegetables are roasting, line baking sheet or flan case with baking parchment.

3.) Roll out pastry, and cut to fit tray or case. Pinch or flute the edges with a knife to decorate, if desired

4.) Spread pastry base with a thin layer of the olive tapenade.

5.) Arrange oven-roast vegetables on top of the pastry/tapenade and sprinkle with either pine nuts, or grated vegan cheese.

6.) Brush the pastry edge with soya or other plant milk, to glaze.

7.) Bake in oven at around 220 º C for around 20 minutes, until pastry is crisp and golden, and vegetables are soft.

8.) Serve with a green salad and crusty bread, or sautéed potatoes.

    Looks yummy and easy, and it looks as if one could choose as many combinations of filling as one can imagine.

    I had something very similar to this on my Alaskan cruise last month and I loved it. I am so happy to find the recipe. I am going to make it tonight. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you VH for the vote and comment! Yes, this makes an easy, tasty, satisfying dinner or lunch dish. With reference to the pics, I am glad you like them so much, but I must confess, most of them I have to get off the internet, as I don't have a digital camera! I try and find a pic that is as close an approximation as possible to the recipe I have posted, or the subject of the blog. As with this one: it looks very like the tart I make, but just without the pine-nuts or cheese. I must see about getting a digicam, now I am doing all this blogging, because obviously a picture does add a lot more interest.

        The pics you pick out are very nice and truly representative of the recipe. My son is a great photographer at the age of 15 and has taught me a lot about taking quality pics which has been a godsend!
